My Saeco won't grind the beans

I've had the machine for ` 2 years. A year ago, the machine stopped grinding the beans. The grinder goes, but something seems to be blocking the beans from getting into the grinder. I had it repaired a year ago, but now that shop does not work on home machines.
Everything else works, and I can make coffee by using the ground bean route.

Does anyone know what the problem could be?

    My wife poured water into the grinder by mistake. I took it all apart a dried it. I cleaned out all of the clotted grounds I could find and the burr rings (twice now) but it still wont fill the hopper in the brew group. I believe the trap door doesn't open, but I've manually opened it and vacummed it out. I brushed it out and check with my finger; it appears open and clean.



    Any ideas?

There's moisture in the grinder & it's clogged - just dismantle the grinder & clean it, then ensure you don't splash water into the bean hopper when you fill the water tank.

Our Saeco Vienna Superautomatica sounds like it's grinding beans but keeps running until the red 'bean' light comes on and we have to shut the machine off. Any suggestions?


The grinder is timing out and stops if the beans do not enter the grinder. This happens because:
1- The grinder outlet is clogged and fresh beans cannot pass through the burrs.
2- The grind setting is too fine and helping clogging in the grinding chamber or the ground coffee outlet.
3- Operator may have been using dark roast oily beans. Like it or not, the dark roast oily beans do not make stronger espresso. Please stop using such beans in fully automatic espresso machines.
4- The grinder has already made over 2000 grinds and the burrs are blunted and not grinding beans as needed.
To solve this malfunction, clean the grinder. Make sure the grinder outlet to the doser is cleaned. This outlet passage is about 2 inches or more. To clean it, lay the machine on its back (water tank side) to allow better view of cleaning the doser and the passage of coffee from the grinder to the doser. Use the link below to find instructions for cleaning the grinder and replace the burrs.

Talea ring the grinder will not stop gringing


The Talea model is with a Ceramic grinder system. This can happen when the grinder outlet is clogged with coffee grounds. Fresh beans cannot enter the grinder as the outlet is clogged. Remember, the grinder in any machine is a grinder. It does not shovel the coffee grounds out and clean the outlet when it is clogged.
1- Check if the grind setting is too fine (powder like). If so change the setting to coarse. Fully automatic machines do not need fine grind. Keep the grind fineness like the table slat grain.
2- Check if the beans are dark roast and oily. Oily beans are a slow poison for any fully automatic machine. Change the beans to Non oily medium roast type.

The grinder grinds too long, then stops and then the bean refill light goes on, ---there are plenty of beans but no coffee being made. I think the grinder is not working somehow. Its a 5 year old Saeco...


The lever under the bean hopper is set to low. Push it all the way to the back.
There is a leverbehind the door in the middle top. Pull it to the minus and try again.
If that doesn't work you are going to have to take the grinder apart and clean it.

Our bean grinder has stopped grinding. It spins but the beans do not grind. The machine works fine on the ground coffee option.


Did you put water in the grinder by mistake? If the grinder is wet it won't grind anymore,have to cleaned the blades physically .
OR are you using the beans from the fridge? It's a NO NO.

Saeco Magic de luxe not grinding beans


Try setting the grind to the coarsest setting, if you still have the same problem, check the wire connections to the board, it might have been reversed.

Coffee machine will not grind the coffee beans?


Since your grinder makes noise and the problem occured suddenly, I would rule out a grinder problem. I am guessing that your grinder runs 10-20 seconds before it stops. If that is the case you need to look for a obstruction in the grinder or a failed microswitch on the doser. Either of these could cause the problem.

Saeco Incanto Classic - Bean feed problem


Hi,

First, make sure you not get any damp into your grinder.
If you get damp into the grinder then it will not grind the beans.

To check the grinder you have to loosen the three screws in the beanhopper and lift it up.
The jagged plastic in the machine you will see when the beanhopper is off, turn it anticlockwise to you can see
the claque is free, then you can take out the jagged plastic and you will see the grinding wheel, make sure the wheel and the jagged plastic is clean.

Before you mount all again, use a vacuum cleaner to clean it.

Put back the jagged plastic again and turn it clockwise to it stop, then you turn it anti clockwise 14"click".
Set the number to 8 on the beanhopper and mount it again.

Hope this will help you.

Best regards
/Mirran

Help....we poured some water into the bean grinder/container


Hi,

You have to take off the bean hopper, turn the ring on grinder anticlockwise to you see the claque. Take out the middle off the grinder and clean everything carefully.

After that you have to put it back again, when you have the middle off the grinder back you turn the ring clockwise to the end, after that you turn it anticlockwise 14 "tick".

The machine won't start up


in the self test does it flush the unit ? If not you have to prime the unit by allowing it to pump hot water through the frothing valve. Open the valve and the pump should pulse water out. After this the machine should indicate it is in the operating mode for coffee
